Man slaps strangers crying kid
A Gwinnett County man is in custody accused of slapping a stranger’s crying toddler in a Stone Mountain Wal-Mart on Monday.
Sonya Mathews, the mother of the 2-year-old child, told police that both were walking in the aisles of the Rockbridge Road store when Roger Stephens, 61, approached and said “if you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you,” according to a police report.
A few moments later, in another aisle, Stephens grabbed the 2-year-old and slapped her across the face four or five times, according to the report.
Stephens then told Mathews, “See, I told you I would shut her up,” according to the report.
Are you kidding me? What I don't undertstand is how the man could grab the 2 yr old and proceed to slap her IN THE FACE 4 or 5 times without getting knocked down. I have a hard time not yelling at kids on the playground who bully my kids.
If some grown man grabbed one of my kids I would TAKE HIM OUT!
What say you, peeps? Is this just a sign of the times? Everyone is a little stressed...... it's understandable......the Mom obviously needed some discipline guidance.......
